A New Modeling Approach and New Two–Stage Reactor for Straw Pellets Torrefaction for Energy

Nikos Nikolopoulos, Rafail L. Isemin, and Oleg Y. Milovanov
Abstract—The scope of this paper is the definition of the most appropriate design parameters for a straw pellets torrefaction reactor of medium scale (capacity 1000 kg/h). However prior to the definition of these parameters, at subsequent level a thermodynamic tool is built and run, capable of predicting the heating value and the main characteristics (% solid residue, proximate analysis) of the torrefied straw pellets, always with parameters: the residence time and temperature.

Index Terms—Biomass, reactor, torrefaction, validation model, wheat straw.)
